 @CrochetBlogger  Ooo I've got Creative Crochet and I've already read your fantastic blog post about it. I'll ready your Granny Square blog post. 

 

I do have one request, please stop writing so well about crochet because you make me wanna buy/make/read everything you write about. There's only so much time and money available!

Hello there I blogged about this too, as well as my other top 4 vintage crochet books.

 

I think the biggest value of retro crochet books is to smash misconceptions of the past. Misconceptions that in the 60s and 70s crochet was all vile coloured yarns and badly designed boxy sweaters. I can look at books from the 60s, 70s and 80s and find some great 'modern' designs and techniques.
